IIUC, when you edit the menu with the MenuEditor app, it makes changes
to the file: "$HOME/.config/menus/applications-kmenuedit.menu" but the
changes don't show up in the menu.
For the changes to show up in the menu, the utility: "kbuildsycoca" must
be run. Normally, this will be run automatically, but it is a
possibility that this isn't working. So, open a Konsole and execute:
and see if that fixes the problem. If so, the question becomes why the
automatic update isn't working.
